While I understand you are intending this to be humorous, but I must be
honest - I have no problem with this scenario.
In fact, if we could count on the C21 multiplier in every DX contest
because of this, what could anyone's legitimate objection possibly be?
If someone has the resources to build a remote station in C21 and can
activate from their home QTH on some other continent or in some other
country, then I am all for it.
This is like a dream come true where you could run a DX pileup from
anywhere. I agree: What fun!
